Berkshire County: Cut-A-Thon to benefit breast cancer coalition

Wednesday February 6, 2013

In honor of Mother’s Day 2013, the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) will organize a statewide Cut-A-Thon event to benefit their work towards preventing breast cancer for future generations.

On the weekend of May 4-5, Massachusetts salons will devote one day to donate all proceeds from haircuts to MBCC. Salons will charge $15 per haircut and events will bring communities together in an effort to make a difference and change the legacy of breast cancer.

MBCC is a local advocacy organization that seeks to understand the environmental causes of breast cancer in order to find ways to prevent the disease before it starts. To learn more about their work, visit
